Shayne Cheney

Shayne Cheney is the founder and owner of Florida Applied Films. Mr. Cheney has a long history in the automotive and RV aftermarket industry. In 1986 he started as an apprentice learning automotive aftermarkets, installing striping graphics and other cosmetic aftermarket accessories.

After many years of being tutored by some of the industry’s finest craftsmen, he decided to go out on his own in 2000, starting SMC Diversified Services, DBA Florida Applied Films. In 2003 he studied the RV Paint Protection Film Industry and in 2004 he proudly became Florida’s first Certified Diamond Shield Representative.

Always looking to stay ahead of the game he also became Certified with 3M Paint Protection Film in 2008. Over the last few years, he’s added two more accomplishments, being Certified with System X Ceramic Coatings in 2018 and in 2021 Florida Applied Films became an Authorized Service Center and Applicator for Dr. Color Chip paint repair. Having done headlight restoration for several years, Shayne upgraded his product offering in 2022 by taking on the Glasweld™ system for a longer lasting headlight finish. Shayne has resided in Florida since 1985 and is a proud family man.
